Not sure what is going to happen this year but my goal is to break some junior records in my local lake. I just need to know what all do I need to have with me to submit a record and what are the steps I need to take if I known I caught a record?

go to TPWD website and print form, it will also give the below info as well.

Angler Recognition Program How To Participate


Be prepared. Review the program rules, check the current records, and secure an official application form. Page 3 of our downloadable brochure media download(PDF 671.4 KB) is an application form that anglers can fill out electronically, print, sign and send. The blank form can also be printed and filled in by hand.
Locate certified scales before the trip, especially for larger species of fish. A list of official weigh stations is available on this website.
Catch your trophy!
Measure the fish.
Take several photos. Photos are required for Catch and Release Record, State Record by Weight, Water Body Record and Big Fish Award applications. Photos of other outstanding catches are welcome. Video recordings will not be accepted in lieu of photographs.
Submitted photos become the property of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. High-quality photos may be chosen for display on the Angler Recognition website and at TPWD locations and events.
If weight is required for your award category, weigh the fish on certifiable or legal-for-trade scales within three days of the catch date. If the scale is not currently certified by the Texas Department of Agriculture, the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) or a commercial scales calibration company, the applicant will have 30 days from the weigh date to have the scale certified.
Complete the Angler Recognition Award application and submit within 60 days of the catch date. Applications for State Catch and Release Records and State Records by weight require the signature of a notary public. The 60-day limit will be waived for catches recognized as world records by the IGFA.
Allow 6 to 8 weeks to receive your certificate.


Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life
